Shia LaBeouf has been a bit of a mess since… well, always, but especially ever since quitting Broadway’s production of Orphans in February over “creative differences” with co-star Alec Baldwin. Then he started posting all of his private emails and antagonizing Alec and even showed up to a performance of the show and stared him down the whole time. But he’s totally not fucking with him, not at all!
While appearing on David Letterman, Shia explained that he “had tension, as men – not as artists – as men” with Alec. Uh, okay.
“I’m pretty passionate and impulsive, and he’s a very passionate individual as well. And I think that impulsiveness and that passion make for some fireworks.”
He went on to say that he went to see Orphans as “a fan” and thinks Alec Baldwin is generally a “good dude”. Well, that’s a relief. I don’t even get what this whole thing is about. Shia was probably being a little twerp during rehearsals and Alec swatted him down like an annoying fly, which he didn’t take too well to and up and quit. That’s just my take, but what else even makes sense here?
